Important Information
On this page are numerous seat parts for both front and rear seats. Seat belts and seat belt parts for your Beetle are on another page.

Reproduction plastic seat parts for the Beetle and Super Beetle are excellent quality.

If you are doing a major Beetle seat restoration (with existing frames) then please consult our books (and literature) page for very thorough seat restoration directions. This page does not include the soft parts such as cushions, or the covers (which are on another page.)

If you require new seat frames then note that those must come from a parts car. There are many forums where you will find sources for Beetle seat frame parts and complete Beetle seat frames.

If you replace your seat frames and want to examine year ranges with the same seats please go to our seat cover pages. It is possible to change seat frames as long as you adapt them to your pans and then purchase compatible seat covers. Please leave any notes with the car for a future owner in case he or she wants to order seat covers and you have installed frames that are not the original ones for your VW Beetle or Super Beetle.
